    Everything either freezes or shuts off.
    It's extremely annoying as I have never had issues with this phone.

    May consider a factory reset?

    It's last resort though. Hate doing that

    My wife's s4 has been the same since whatever update she got the other week.

    I noticed both of our memory cards are almost full.
    Could this be causing the problem?

    I couldn't figure out how to delete items from the card like you can on the internal memory?

    Yes, an overloaded internal SD card can slow or stall the system, but it's more likely low RAM. There may be too many apps installed or at least too many running in the background. Use the apps manage option to see what's installed and/or running and make some decisions about whether you really need all those apps installed. Start uninstalling them starting with the latest apps and then those who are the biggest memory hogs.

    We all love to hoard apps. Most we never use. Apps are always doing something in the background. Delete the ones you never/rarely use.

    Factory reset after a new OS update is always the best solution I've found.. Most people just take the update.. Although this last Note 2 update was small so maybe something app wise as stated..

    I've read that the Note 2 runs best with at least 1.5gb free.
